  • Dear friend, it's from some English book with short stories to read and develop vocabulary, unfortunately it contains no links Commented Apr 19, 2018 at 13:53
  • Name of the book? It seems to have been taken from faze.ca/amy-lee-of-evanescence-her-life-the-group, but perhaps edited somewhat. Please edit your question to name the "English Book".

The question needs to be asked in the context of the idiom:

idiomatic expression: to bring something [here: her goth girl self] to the table

meaning: to have something to offer people in some situation.

A goth girl is a girl who dresses in the goth style.

goth girl self goes one step beyond that and suggests that a goth girl (or guy for that matter) not only dress in goth style but they have a personality [self] to match the attire.

It says her in the same way you would say her personality. It means it belongs to her and not to a general class of people.
